Builder Program Offers Home Buyers Real Selection

The Forest is one of the few private gated master planned communities in the Sarasota/Manatee region where buyers can choose their homesite and select from several of the area’s best custom builders. The builder program currently includes:

  • Arthur Rutenberg Homes
  • Anchor Builders
  • John Cannon Homes
  • Neal Signature Homes
  • Todd Johnston Homes

“Many of the custom home communities in this region have been purchased by large builder companies and now have fewer  builders available for buyers looking to build a new home,”  said Brian Wood, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty exclusive agent at The Forest.  “These larger builders also don’t offer as much customization of their floor plans.”

Wood said The Forest is one of the few remaining master planned communities where it’s still possible to select a homesite, choose from several excellent builders and have a wide selection of floor plans and customization opportunities when building a new home.

“The majority of clients I work with who are looking to build a custom home want the ability to choose their builder,” said Wood.  “The Forest combines that with a wonderful wooded setting and true estate-sized homesites allowing buyers the flexibility to create one-of-a-kind homes.”
